Hall Green Youth Club late 40's early 50's

Anyone old enough to remember the early days of this youth club, formed not long after the war? We originally met in a large underground air raid shelter underneath the central reservation in nearby Fox Hollies Road (I wonder if it's still there?), but soon moved to Hall Green church hall where every Saturday evening there was either a film show or an entertainment on stage by talented(?) members. The Revd Chatterton was, at least in theory, in charge.

philm, my wife was in that club in the early 50's along with some friends who she is still in contact with. Her name was Joan Finney in those days.
I would presume your name is Phil something.

My wife contacted her other friends from the Fellowship but unless there was a surname they do not know you. The name Pat Haywood does ring a bell with them so maybe she will respond.

Thanks for the reply Dave. by the early 1950's I was in my 20's and therefore more interested in Birmingham's pubs rather than youth clubs! Which is probably why I don't recall your wife's name.
